Welcome to the most viewed recipe on my blog! These lemon cheesecake bars have been made so many times, and I love seeing all of your recipe photos! I just edited this post and added a printable version. I hope it’s now easier to follow! Enjoy these delicious low carb & sugar-free
I could come up with a story and an excuse for baking these bars, but truth is, there was no special occasion. I just felt like baking for the love of it. I did choose these bars for a reason though. Everyone around me loves cheesecake and lemon. I could care less for the cheesecake, I’m more of a chocolate or cake person.
When I was deciding on what to bake, I had a couple of limits. Whatever I baked had to be low carb and low sugar; Sure, I could have made chocolate cake or something I like, but I didn’t want those laying around the house taunting me. I knew I’d eat the lemon bars like a normal human being, but a chocolate dessert would be gone…fast.
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a low carb cheesecake recipe and mentioned it would be really good with an almond flour crust and so that’s what inspired this dessert.
Simple, easy and cheesy! My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
